Usher Admits Intimacy With Ex-Wife’s Bridesmaid, Gives Candid Talk to Oprah — Video
Usher has been notoriously silent on matters of his personal life, but the R&B star recently opened up to Oprah in an extremely candid interview for “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” She visited the “U Got It Bad” singer in his Atlanta home, where he is raising his two sons, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond.
The crooner and his former wife Tameka Foster have been embroiled in an intense custody battle involving their sons since 2009. On Aug. 24, 2012, the case came to a close and Usher was awarded primary custody. Throughout the past three years, the singer has kept quiet about the matter, but his talk with Oprah changed that.
He fielded all of Oprah’s intensely personal questions about whether he loved Tameka, if he was faithful in their relationship, what was really going on in his head when he left the stage in Berlin last year and even what music he plays in the bedroom.
The “Yeah!” hitmaker admits that toward the end of his marriage to Tameka he wasn’t entirely faithful, even if it was just emotionally. “Towards the end of our marriage, I found myself lost and I just wanted out,” he said. “I was faithful at heart, but not faithful all the way. Even having conversation with another woman about matters of your relationship is not being faithful.”
In a shocking admission, he even shares a story of being sexually intimate with one of Tameka’s bridesmaid. “I did have exchanges with her,” Usher disclosed.
